Brian Donlevy in 'Pit Stop'
Brian Donlevy in 'Pit Stop'

Carquake! continues at Trailers from Hell with filmmaker Jack Hill introducing "Pit Stop," one of his most belatedly popular movies, which took several years to make it to the drive-ins, largely because it was shot in black-and-white. Filmed under the title The Winner, it’s a gritty, no-frills drag racing saga set around the dangerous Figure Eight Races, which seem designed to promote crowd-pleasing car crashes. Veteran character actor Brian Donlevy’s final film and Ellen Burstyn’s first (under the name Ellen McRea).
